Studies have shown that a regular yoga practice can help with overcoming negative thinking, reduce stress and anxiety, increase energy levels, improve breathing and help you to become more emotionally balanced... plus there's numerous other benefits too. Yoga isn't just the practice of asanas, it's an exploration of the union of the mind and the body with it's origins firmly rooted in ancient Indian philosophy
Dru yoga is a heart-based practice incorporating classical yoga asanas, flowing yoga sequences and deep relaxation utilising mudras (gestures), positive intentions, affirmations and empowering visualisations. There is an emphasis on core engagement along with an awareness that all movements originate from the spine. Dru yoga can be gentle or dynamic and is always tailored to suit the student. Whether you're a complete beginner, have been on your yoga path for many years, young or old or have physical limitations – every posture or sequence can be modified to suit you
As a student yoga teacher I teach beginners yoga on a one-to-one basis only. If you would like to start your yoga journey please get in touch via the contact page
You will need: comfortable clothing, bolster or cushion (to place beneath the knees for relaxation optional – can also be used as a prop), mat, yoga block, yoga belt, blanket, eye pillow (optional) and water
It is helpful if students complete a short health form
Dru comes from the Sanskrit word dhruva, which refers to the stillness that can be experienced in Dru Yoga and Dru Meditation. In this stillness we are able to sit back from anything that may be happening around us, and see and act from a point of clarity and inner calm.
